Invest in Your Outdoor Space

Now is the perfect time to think about and invest in your outdoor space. Whether you like to host an occasional barbecue, relax alone in the evenings by a fire, or throw neighborhood block parties, we have everything you need to add value to your yard and outdoor space at Beach Stove and Fireplace.

Planning for Your New Space

Your outdoor space should be a flat area that doesn’t collect a lot of water during wet weathers. The shape of your outdoor space may depend on the space available, walls and barriers, and plant life. You don’t want to have low-hanging trees next to a fire pit or fireplace. If you need help determining what type of fire best suits your new space, we can help! Not only do we sell the top brands in the industry, but we also build custom fireplaces and gas fire pits. Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace, and we’ll bring warmth and vibrancy to your space with a brilliant fire appliance.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are a favorite among our customers for poolside decks, garden patios, and outdoor kitchens. We specialize in custom gas fire pits, but many of our customers find they like the natural look and feel of the wood fire. We also build wood fire pits and install beautiful clay chimeneas. You can choose stylish designs and big builds for your fire pit. You can also go with a standard pit or ring, which can be safely installed on a flat surface with a bed of gravel or sand.

Fireplaces

Growing in popularity among homeowners, contractors, and property managers are outdoor fireplaces. These fireplaces are often nestled into barrier walls, built in stylish and mantels, and designed to complement the landscape, seating, and space of your outdoor kitchen or patio.

Patio Heaters and More

If you don’t need a fireplace or have too little space for a fireplace or fire pit that offers enough heat, you can invest in a patio heater. Gas and electric patio heaters offer your family and guests warmth, even in cold seasons and allow you to use your outdoor space year-round. You can choose a built-in heater that is hidden from view, a wall heater that is inconspicuous, and even an upright gas heater that burns beautifully. If heat is not the issue, you can add light to walkways, pool decks, doorways, and more by installing gas lanterns and torches.

Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace

There’s a saying in the industry: fire goes with everything. When any of our fire products are carefully chosen, professionally installed, and properly maintained, the money you spend on your home will be an investment. When choosing fire appliances for your home or property, it’s important to hire the professionals. Our customers get the best service possible through our sister company, Guaranteed Chimney Service. Choose us and we’ll make sure you are in good hands!

Benefits of An Ethanol Fireplace

Spring is here, and homeowners across the U.S. are finally planning their summer festivities. Memorial Day is right around the corner, and you may be scoping out a barbecue grill for the patio or new paint for the garage exterior.

Outdoor projects are a great way to spend those mild summer days, but you can also make a remarkable statement to your home by installing a fireplace indoor or outdoor. Adding an ethanol fireplace to your home offer many benefits, and you should consider adding one today.

Ethanol is Eco-Friendly & Easy to Install

As a renewable liquid fuel source, ethanol burns clean with no odor or pollutants. It is considered a “green” product. Many homeowners are happy to hear that ethanol is an environmentally-friendly fuel source.

When you choose an ethanol fireplace, you can work with our installation team too. These fireplaces do not need any ventilation, so you don’t have to install a chimney or flue, expensive “kit”, or anything else. It works great indoors or outdoors, and our professionals at Beach Stove and Fireplace can help you determine the best location.

Ethanol is Perfect for Small Spaces

While ethanol and gas fire units have been competing in recent years, there are several ways ethanol is better than gas. First, it is perfect for a small space. Gas was once the only option for fire appliances inside apartments and condos, but there are still spaces that are unsafe for a gas unit. Ethanol can be installed in small rooms of 20 square feet without affecting the oxygen in the room. Not only is it safe for breathable air, but ethanol fireplaces are also suited for small spaces due to small heat-output. This means you can use them during the summer and winter with no problem.

Ethanol is Stylish and Convenient

You can use your ethanol fireplace through all four seasons. Because it produces beautiful flames, and it won’t run you out of the house with high heat output. It is ignited with a remote control system or a match, and it is easily adjustable. The flames from an ethanol fireplace are more lively than with those of a gas fireplace or log set. Ethanol fireplaces are often sleek and contemporary, but you can choose whatever style that best suits your home and personality. Whether you’re choosing a new fireplace for inside or outside, we have an ethanol fireplace for you!

At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we encourage our customers to check out design ideas and talk to a professional before making their final decisions. We can help you choose the perfect unit for your space and money! Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace today, and we can help you choose and install a new ethanol fireplace. Call us at 631-998-0780.

It’s Time to Think About a Fire Pit

During this transition between the hot summer months and the cooler fall, it is a perfect time to think about adding a fire pit to your backyard paradise. Sitting outside with a drink and the smell of burning wood wafting into your nostrils is a great scene and an even better event space for entertaining others. As people add more and more accessories to their backyards, installing an attractive, crackling fire pit is just what the doctor ordered.

What to consider when adding a fire pit:

Like any new fixture in your home, it is important to consider all the choices before settling on the final product. What do you want out of your fire pit? Having simply a nice ambiance can result in a different product than one created for serious heat. Your budget can be another big factor. Starting at around $100, the choice to install it yourself, or have one that simply sits on the ground, will quickly filter out many of the competitors. If your budget is more in the range of several thousand dollars to more than $10,000, there are many more options to choose from, especially if you want a custom fire pit that matches the décor of your house and outside entertaining space. Deciding if you want your fire pit to be in your yard permanently or temporarily can also alter your options. If you can see the fire pit being a permanent fixture as the season changes, having one custom built with the proper materials and stones is essential. Having a choice in the metal, either copper, stainless steel, or cast iron, that forms the bowl of your fire pit can add or detract from the ambiance you are trying to achieve.

What to be careful of:

Within your own backyard, it is easy to lose sight of the dangers that are associated with fire, especially when left unattended. Keep your fire pit centrally located, in full view of yourself and your guests. Clearing away any brush or tree limbs that are anywhere near the pit will limit the chances for something to catch on fire. Before lighting the fire, make sure the wood you’re using doesn’t throw sparks excessively (common among pine or cedar wood), and take note of the wind patterns. Using soft wood or lighting a fire when it is excessively windy is a safety hazard for both you and your guests. Besides designing the right ambiance, ensuring that your fire pit follows all the local laws and community rules is absolutely necessary. Many have regulations limiting how close your fire pit can be from other homes, and some may even require a permit or site inspection to make sure there is no chance of your fire pit catching something like a fence or tree branch on fire.

There is no time like the present to consider adding a fire pit to your outdoor setting! Give us a call at 631-998-0780 with questions about your fire pit options.

Custom Gas Fire Pits

There’s nothing like enjoying an outdoor fire during the warm summer months. Whether you’re roasting marshmallows or just relaxing with a glass of wine while watching the sunset, custom gas fire pits allow you to bask in the warmth of an outdoor fire with a gorgeous centerpiece that is completely unique. If you are thinking of installing a custom gas fire pit in your backyard, it is important to consult with a professional to make sure the job is done correctly and safely.

gas-fire-pit-image-westhampton-beach-ny-beach-stove-and-fireplace

Planning Your Gas Fire Pit

When you work with a professional, you can be sure your fireplace is built in a location that is beautiful, as well as safe. Your professional fireplace technician and contractor will find a place that is free from overhanging shrubbery and trees, as well as any pergolas or other hanging outdoor furniture. By taking careful planning measures before your gas fire pit is installed you will avoid costly modifications down the line.

Installing

Having a professional contractor like those at Beach Stove And Fireplace will make sure everything is in accordance with fire laws in your area. For example, in West Hampton Beach, NY we only sell electronic ignition and push button ignition because match lit fire pits are not allowed in our area. You also want to make sure you get the correct size burner for your fire pit and how you intend on using your pit (cooking, recreational, decorative). We are familiar with the local fire codes in our area and can help you install a fire pit that is both beautiful, as well as in alignment with fire codes. A qualified technician will sell you the products right for your area, for your personal needs and for your budget.

Maintenance

Another benefit to hiring a professional to plan and install your custom fire pit is that you will be able to call them should any maintenance needs arise. When you install a fire pit in your backyard you must make sure it is kept clean and that the stones are all sealed and intact. Additional repairs may be required, especially if you use your fire pit on a regular basis. Having a professional fire pit technician to call can help maintain your fireplace as well as answer any questions that come up.

Additional Fire Pit Tips:

  • Be sure to extinguish fire completely after every use.
  • Cover your fire pit to protect the stones and keep it dry.
  • Never leave a fire unattended.
  • Only use your fire pit according to manufacturer instructions.
  • Call your professional technician if anything isn’t working properly.

Beach Stove And Fireplace is your one-stop fire pit shop with everything you need to enjoy a gorgeous fire night after night. Our professionals are on-hand to answer any of your questions, as well as help plan your new fire pit. We can help install your new fire pit and make ourselves available to answer any questions you may have. Contact us today to start planning your custom fire pit.
